One of the world's largest squares, the Plaza de la Revolucion is not so grand at first sight, being an enormous concrete place with no shade at all. On second glance we notice the notable buildings surrounding the square, such as the Jose Marti Memorial, a tall, 5pointed star shaped building dedicated to the revolutionary poet of Cuba, the National Library, the building of the Ministry of the Interior which features on its side a huge portrait of Che Guevara and Fidel Castro's headquarters.

The whole place is quite deserted but in the older times many assemblies and rallies were held here, during which head of states, like Castro, addressed the crowd with long, political speeches. Nowadays, the square is full of people only on official events, like for example Montcada Day.

Address:
Vedado, Calle 25, Havana 14200, Cuba

Price:
No admission fee, though you have to pay in the Memorial

Opening Hours:
No opening hours.
